Honest money activist releases barter-friendly gold grams emblazoned with Ron Paul figure

(NaturalNews) A noted liberty activist has launched a campaign to return "value" to local communities by reintroducing an "ancient" form of "peer-to-peer commerce."

Gary Franchi, founder of the Next News Network and host of last year's Global Freedom Summit, believes "organic money" is the answer to protecting against an eventual collapse of the world financial system. It's also a great way to return to a more personalized economy.

"We're going back to basics with this modern day twist on an ancient way for peer-to-peer commerce," Franchi wrote on his Indiegogo funding page.

His concept: "Certified Sound Money" -- cards emblazoned with graphics that resemble paper money and are embedded with 1 gram of pure gold.

"Think local, think clean, think barter, and put some value back into your community," he says in an animated video explaining the concept.

Making commerce local again

"Going 'organic' doesn't have to be limited to the food we eat but it can also apply to the way we decide to exchange value with each other through mutual agreements," he wrote on his Indiegogo page. "When you contribute to this campaign you'll be taking a step forward towards greater independence and choices in the free markets."

"Proceeds from the funds will go to expanding our line of cards, creating barter guides, and most importantly getting the word out about this back-to-basics approach of using money again."

Franchi notes that, in 1912, J.P. Morgan observed, "Gold is money. Everything else is credit." And one of the biggest problems in the global economic system today, he says, is that it is riddled with debt. In fact, there are more than two dozen countries whose debt-to-GDP ratio is more than 200 percent; several are more than 300 percent.

"Whether it is personal credit card debt or the national debt we need to get a hold of it before it gets even more out of control," Franchi wrote. "These little cards are the answer because when you use them you are transferring real value not a debt instrument like paper money or a credit card."

Franchi, a longtime advocate of a simpler, more basic economic system, envisions the cards being used in local farmers' markets, coffee shops and grocery stores, all while reducing the burden of debt on virtually all societies.

"For years I have been a vocal advocate for empowering individuals with the tools needed to return value to their communities," he wrote. "In the past I have put tens of thousands of dollars worth of copper, silver, and gold barter medallions in the hands of people all over the United States. This latest effort updates the barter tools by placing them into a common shape that conveniently fits in everyone's wallet or purse."

Franchi's path to liberty is easily understood

Franchi's liberty-minded attitude comes naturally. He grew up in, and still lives in, scenic Northbrook, Ill., the picturesque city that is familiar to many moviegoers who've seen classic films like Home Alone, The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Franchi made his move into political activism as an associate of the late filmmaker and noted liberty activist Aaron Russo, who was the writer and director of the acclaimed documentary America: Freedom to Fascism. Though he had previously produced hit films like Trading Places, The Rose, Wise Guys and Teachers, he used the documentary as a platform to showcase fraudulent origins and criminal activities surrounding the Federal Reserve and the Internal Revenue Service.

Last year's summit was billed as "the single greatest freedom-loving event of the year."
